#14472 Quilt Block Five

This is a quilt block from a large full size quilt of 25 squares that was hand stitched by my mother in the eighties. With this pinwheel design, she used up a lot of little scraps and each of the 25 blocks are in different colors in this same pattern. I hung the antique quilt over a high rod in the studio and shifted it around to get a close-in image of all 25 squares. My mother was an artist herself and she had a very good sense of what would work well together, as seen throughout this quilt block series. They are offered as a 15x15 canvas which is just shy of actual size, and they are a nice slice of traditional Americana.
